Young devotees of Horror, Sci-Fi and Suspense have a summer camp to call their own! Creepshow Camps face “fright” with curiosity and creativity, revealing the secret techniques behind scary entertainments’ vitality and power. Workshops led by our dedicated staff of teaching artists engage participants, hands-on, in activities that teach and reinforce the fundamental skills in monster make-up, special effects, sleight of hand and stage combat. In our theatre venue, campers screen classic horror movies and rehearse on-stage for farewell performances given for family and friends at the end of every Creepshow Camp session.
Each two-week session is led by the Camp’s director Russell Blackwood, the creator of the Bay Area Shakespeare Camps who founded Creepshow Camp in 2006, and guest artists from award-winning horror theatre company, Thrillpeddlers. Each staff member brings with them an unmatched expertise, insight and exuberance for creating on-stage thrills and chills.

Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour's instructions: the script will be opened in front of the audience and performed unrehearsed by a different protagonist for each show. The event benefits Thrillpeddlers, and Russell sees it as a fitting and fun performance risk to kick off the week he turns 50.
